Lost templates in visual Studio 2005.

background: For my new gig I needed to install Visual Studio 2005. I already have Visual Studio 2008 installed, so I was hoping for a nice easy side by side install. Well … that’s what I got. Sort of anyway. When I finished I found that VS.2005 looked OK but there were no templates installed. In other words, New – Project – VB didn’t give me any templates for VB projects. Same with C#. The BI templates and the C++ templates all installed OK. A little digging on the internet turned up the solution. Go to the Visual Studio 2005 command prompt (under Visual Studio Tools) and run the following:

devenv /installvstemplates

It takes a minute or two to run, but it worked perfectly. There was a note on the forum where I found this that indicated the problem could be caused by a registry cleaner. I use CCleaner, so that’s probably the culprit.
